From a private collection. I believe this is the gold crown vs red crown however the gold plating has faded/worn off tho some bits do remain. Overall I would consider it in good condition. However, there is some paint loss around the edges and here and there especially the gold plate on crown(be sure to use the zoom feature). No bends, breaks, repairs or extra holes. Quite stout and appears to be steel as a magnet sticks to it. May 8th, 1936 Standard Oil put out an ad in selected states looking for 300,000 motorists to take part in the worlds greatest road test. All you had to do is come in get your free “handsome” metal tag topper keep records and you’re an official test car driver!
